This one-owner 2001 Mercedes-Benz SLK320 Sport was sold new at Hammersly Motors of Lynchburg, VA in November 2001 for $50,875. Finished in Brilliant Silver Metallic (744) over Anthracite leather (211), this R170 SLK is powered by a 3.2-liter V6 power plant mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. Features include the Sport AMG styling with sculpted bumpers and side skirts along with AMG wheels, a power-folding hardtop, heated seats, and climate control. Recent work includes replacement of the convertible top pump and a fluid service. The odometer presents only 8k original miles. The car previously sold on The MB Market in April 2022, but the buyer was unable to follow through due to personal reasons. This SLK 320 Sport is now offered by the widow of the original owner with the laminated original window sticker, dealer service records, factory books and literature, radio code cards, two original key FOBs, two valet keys, original tool roll, jack, spare tire, first aid kit, and a clean Carfax report.
The body is finished in Brilliant Silver Metallic (744) and is free of any blemishes. Exterior features include a power-retractable hardtop with an electrically heated rear window and the Sport package which includes AMG bumpers, side skirts, and single chrome exhaust outlet. A video showing the power folding hardtop operation is viewable below and the convertible top pump was recently replaced by the dealer in April 2022. All of the Brilliant Silver Metallic paintwork is original and the panel gaps are all even and symmetrical. Accordingly, the Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage. The front end is free of rock chips or other imperfections and presents appropriately as an 8k-mile car.
The staggered 17” AMG monoblock 5-spoke wheels are specific to the Sport Package and wrapped in the original Continental ContiSportContact tires measuring 225/45 up front and 245/40 in the rear with 2000 date codes. Despite being old, there are no signs of dry rot but the seller states the rubber is hard. The OEM wheels still retain their factory machined lips and painted faces and are free of any curb rash or imperfections.
The interior is trimmed in Anthracite leather (211) with matching black carpets, dash and center console. The leather hides on both bucket seats are heated and in excellent condition. Additional features include manual climate control, cruise control, cup holders, and the factory Mercedes-Benz radio. The entry/skid plates and pedals wear OEM metal sport trim with black rubber accents. Eucalyptus wood trim adorns the center console, air vents, and doors with no cracks or other visible imperfections in the trim. The rubberized interior trim paint shows a blemish near the handbrake lever as well as below the handle on the glove box. SLK-branded OEM rubber mats are installed over top the original carpet mats and included with the sale.
The four-spoke Sport wood and leather wrapped steering wheel sits in front of a chrome-ringed gauge cluster displaying a 160-mph speedometer, 7k-rpm tachometer, and additional readouts for fuel level and coolant temperature. The digital odometer reads just 8,053 original miles. A digital clock and outside temperature gauge are also present.
The 3.2-liter M112 V-6 cylinder powerplant is rated at 215-hp and 229 lb-ft of torque from the factory. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission. The car was recently received it's state-required annual inspection at the dealership in November 2021 and also had the convertible top pump replaced in April 2022.
